Muhammad broke with his Jewish supporters because they refused to recognize him as a prophet and adopt Islam. He chose now to emphasize the Arabness of the new religion and has his followers face Mecca when praying instead of Jerusalem. In the end, all the Jews were either banished or executed.

IF I AM DELUSIONAL...I HAVE LOST NOTHING..By striving to live a Christian life
Your Christian STYLE of living is to allot others to hell and slather your self with GLORY and eternal bliss.

I've tried to make it plain to you many times that arrogance is what is driving you ... but your PRIDE motivates you to keep on PREACHING.

The biggest issue in your church in the past 500 years! sexual abuse by roman catholic clergy around the world, and those who didn't abuse covered up these sins and lied to you, and you say......NOTHING!
Every instance I have SPOKEN OUT AGAINST SEXUAL ABUSE. I have spoken out against the MONEY LAUNDERING by the vatican bank. Every instance. It makes me wonder about you who have been silent about your church leaders who have never taken the high road of morality.
I am sure you are vocal about issues pertaining to your Mayor, your congressman, your city officials, but when it comes to your church leaders you have a built in FEAR and always come out defending them no matter what they have done wrong.
I will never remain silent. Too bad for you.
What you're doing is dragging it back and forth thru the mud again and again. And that has nothing to do about being an advocate. You're speaking up to smear the Church. You need to feel better about leaving it for atheism that's all. Its sad use such an evil topic for your vendetta.
Then when we Catholics don't participate in your constant child abuse talk, you accuse us of 'not speaking out'. What do you want from us? We readily admit sinful men run the Church and always have. Every decade since Christ there was scandal. Its no different then any Canadian or American family. There will always be a sister or cousin who messes up. Does that mean your whole family is condemned?
Jesus promised to protect the Church from doctrinal error and He has. He never promised to remove sin or sinful impulses. But sin wouldn't destroy the Church. Its still visible 2,000 yrs later.

Within solidified Abrahamic theology ... that means the Jews are still his chosen few.

Must be because the Bible (Catholic and Christian) teaches this from beginning to end. 144,000 souls; 12,000 from each of the 12 tribes (seeds) of Judah are his chosen few as written in scripture....buuuuut U don't believe in any of that "stuff"!

Jehovah-god WILLS that you must preach at Catholics that they are not saved unless they follow Luther's teachings ... as do YOU???
You solicit your favorite words written by Catholics in the new testament to in turn USE against Catholics as a threat to their own safety ... when those specific words were meant by the Catholics to be used against heretics such as the Jews AND YOU!
You are on QUITE a MISSION in deed!
:)
THE MISSION I AM ON ...AS APPOSED TO YOURS....IS A MISSION OF LOVE...

THERE IS NO SUBSTITUTE OR PLACEBO...THAT CAN REPLACE THE WORD OF GOD...

YOUR DELUSION AND THEIRS BOTH ULTIMATELY LEAD TO THE DESTRUCTION....

You as an atheist...have no hope of eternal life...

The Roman-est have copped a placebo...both end up in the same place ..

The Bible says...

Rom 12:1 I beseech you therefore, brethren,

by the mercies of God,

that ye present your bodies a living sacrifice,

holy,

acceptable unto God,

which is your reasonable service.

Rom 12:2 And be not conformed to this world:

but be ye transformed

by the renewing of your mind,

that ye may prove what is that good, and acceptable, and perfect, will of God.

Rom 12:3 For I say, through the grace given unto me, to every man that is among you, not to think of himself more highly than he ought to think; but to think soberly, according as God hath dealt to every man the measure of faith.

A CHRISTIAN IS NOT SUPPOSED TO LIVE BY HIS (FIVE COMMON SENSES)

THE BIBLE SAYS

Rom_1:17 For therein is the righteousness of God revealed from faith to faith: as it is written, The just shall live by faith.

Gal_2:20 I am crucified with Christ: nevertheless I live; yet not I, but Christ liveth in me: and the life which I now live in the flesh I live by the faith of the Son of God, who loved me, and gave himself for me.
Gal_3:11 But that no man is justified by the law in the sight of God, it is evident: for, The just shall live by faith.

Heb_10:38 Now the just shall live by faith: but if any man draw back, my soul shall have no pleasure in him.

Rom_14:23 .......... for whatsoever is not of faith is sin.

I suggest that Martin Luther knew if he stayed in Catholicism, he would always be a simple unknown monk ... but if he started a new religion, he would go down in history as a famous man in deed.

He was as arrogant as any human on earth, yet feigned humility as he dragged his image of Jesus from Catholicism along with his new haughty attitude of claiming to KNOW truth, from the same book ... no less!

The Jews that broke away from believing in multiple gods to start their one-god dogma were full of the same pride. "We now have the ONLY god in creation, and YOU have to come to US if you want to be approved of by Jehovah."

Religion from the get-go was and is BUNK.

Yet you keep threatening ME with HELL, while I keep assuring you that I don't believe in hell for you OR for others.

If what you are promoting is love ... I don't want it to infect me.

You can change ... but only if you stop being a preacher.

Before U say that the Old Testament was just "wrote", have U considered what is referred to as the "Bible Codes" found in a computerized algorythm of the Hebrew OT text?! If U say it's a hoax or just garbage, it will show your lack of understanding and knowledge on the subject...yet a simple "I'm not really sure" would be appreciated if U aren't aware of this anomaly!!!

Your thoughts are based on one of your five senses.

All of which we are aware is "carnal."

Religion taught you that you could go beyond thought, and that is a lie. Imagination IS thought and religion is imagination that simply takes thought in circles.

I don't know who wrote the following quote, but it makes sense to me.

"When one person suffers from a delusion, it's called insanity. When many people suffer from a delusion, it is called religion."

Are U sure that U're old enough to be on this forum?! Your comprehension skills aren't as sharp as an educated adult's should be...as far as being able to read a short statement and understand the context of it!!

All ancient religious literature was written by humans, and humans are dumb creatures by what we don't know.

If you are trying to pick truth out of ancient nonsense and in turn get stuck in that silly notion that you OWN truth, you will be stuck in the same mental bondage as have all other "preachers" of religions since religion began.

Your preaching is nothing special to anyone but you.

June

And scientists just keeps running around with theories that reverse themselves every 8-10 years.

In religion, virtues and vices have remained the same for the last 2000 years....

I find imagination a part of the creative process, without it there is no beauty.

Be nice today, and someone might smile back....

You will resort to insults when I refuse to agree that your preaching is based on truth.

That is the nature of all preachers of religion.

Preachers have insisted again and again that because I didn't believe they knew truth, that I will spend eternity in hell.

And all the while they want me to warm up to their religion, and are too dense to understand why religion offends me.

Judging people on this board is what you call a "Christian life?"

And a more "abundant" life too!

I would call it deep.

Wow, so much vile at an anonymous poster, because they posted a quote that per you was "what I had just said."

This is like straight from Alice and Wonderland.

Hahaha!! I don't know!..I have to study up on that. I heard (from people who don't know Islam but from what is portrayed by the media powers that be) that he took an 8 year old girl as his wife at some point but if it's true I would have to research the circumstances of such a thing. Then if we know our history we have records of tradition in Rome, Greece, Britain, India, in the Native Americas, etc. that women were taken as wives as soon as puberty...which at that time still varied (between 9 & 12). I could have been a case of marraige in-between families which is also traditional to this day. Also, I've heard people say that Muhammud was 14 years old and wrote the Qur'an in a cave...lol!!...I found out that was simply NOT TRUE AT ALL!! Lol!! So like I said, I'll have to look into it more from a historical standpoint and not from individuals who know NOTHING of Islam before I say that I can believe it or not.
